‘COUNTRY STYLE’ IS, OF COURSE, RUSTIC AND
RELAXED, BUT IT IS PARTICULARLY WARM,
ELEGANT AND ROMANTIC.
In contrast to the more opulent sensibility that might be
found in the drawing rooms and salons of Paris, London,
or Rome, Country décor is lived-in, timeless, and enduring.
It is earthyusing light colors that are complimented
by sunlight paired with natural materials and textures;
surfaces are gently time-worn, edges softened.
‘Country style’ represents centuries of slow-paced, yet
industrious living; family life centered around a glowing
hearth, traditions and methods handed down through
generations. It also transports you to gracious outdoor
entertainingSummer days with family and good friends
gathered to enjoy fine wine and a simple meal of fresh
local ingredients. This is truly ‘la belle vie’ or ‘bella vita.’

HEARTHSIDE MANTELS
‘FRENCH COUNTRY STYLE’ SPRINGS FROM THE
GENTLE HILLS AND VALLEYS OF RURAL FRANCE.
Stone farmhouses, terra-cotta tiled roofs, fields of fragrant
lavender, golden light—it is rustic, warm, welcoming, and
unpretentious, with an unstudied elegance. Natural materials
like wood and stone figure prominently, and décor is built
around a few well-loved family heirlooms. The soft color
palate reflects France’s bountiful, sun-dappled landscapes,
incorporating gentle hues of lavender, yellow, terra-cotta, and
pale washes. The eect is humble and authentic, feeding the
soul as well as the eye.

the
CAMPANILE
French Provencial Style. The original, circa 1480-1490,
came from a “Mas” (farmhouse) in Provence. The
Campanile combines elegant proportions with crisp
architectural lines. The wide protruding entablature
and deeply curved legs are authentically characteristic
of the Louis XIII period. A typical ‘French Country’
design seen in châteaus and farmhouses across France.

INSPIRED BY THE TEMPERATE CLIMATE AND
LUSH ROLLING HILLS OF OLIVE GROVES, the
perfectly spaced slender Italian cypresses lining road-
ways, ‘Italian Country style is a timeless aesthetic
that never fails to enchant. Rich in history, the Italian
countryside is dotted with romantic terra-cotta tiled
stone villas and farmhouses, some of which date back to
the days of the Roman Empire, ‘Italian Country style is
strong, simple, romantic, and rustic.

HEARTHSIDE MANTELS
THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE
IS CHARACTERIZED BY ITS IMPRESSIVE MASONRY,
USING LOCALLY AVAILABLE MATERIALS: NATURAL
STONE, STUCCO, AND TERRA-COTTA BRICK.
Large and small stones are randomly combined in wall con-
struction, creating a pleasing effect of undulating, irregular
lines, and sturdy walls that can be up to three-feet thick.
It’s the soft reddish limestone, ‘rosso ammonitico’, that gives
ancient Italian villages their sun-burnished rosy glow—an
effect that can be achieved in contemporary décors with natu-
ral or cultured stone, or painted stucco. Ceiling architecture is
often a highlight, with tiled barrel-ceilings, or massive timber
beams, with stucco accents.
The traditional Italian country home has a spacious and
inviting kitchen with a prominent stone fireplace as its focal
point where family and friends gather. Floors are of durable
terra-cotta tile, built to last a hundred years or longer.

The Italian Country palette
exudes a warmth that is deeply
appealing as a mix of neutrals
and earth tones—colors found
in nature; rusty orange and
moss green, deep blues, muted
browns often paired with wood
trim. Furniture is heavy, of
solid wood—intended to last
for generations.
